June 5 - August 29, 2020
curated by Valeria Federici
The title, Trying, comes from my Artist Statement (since 2010), that in turn comes from my text for Faceless Portrait, 2007.
The exhibition is about the continuation of a variety of struggles in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, from irrational political actions to a global pandemic. The work consists of my text (written mostly in spring of 2019) and recycling prints into objects and having them be containers for handcrafted nature. I made these prints when I was Artist in Residence in the office of Ross Barkan's campaign for State Senator (that subsequently turned into a short-lived community space, Solidarity Space, 2018-2019 - see Political Office, 2018-2019).
